I'm scared of going into the ocean because... I can't really swim :c I could have drowned once and only the fact that I could swim on my back saved me. That was terrifying!
I used to go to this lake with my mom and her sister's family, and my cousin (who could swim very well and was -- is -- very strong) and I would rent a paddle boat or I'd grab my little cousin's inner tube and we'd swim across the lake, and I'd get so creeped out whenever we swam over seaweed! It felt so nasty. ;_;
I live in a seaside town so I'm always close to the sea. ♥ I hardly ever go in though because its cold. I don't like hard pebbles on the ground or seaweed. Yuck! I can't swim very well either... I can do breaststroke, but that's about it.
